Swatch out! I'm voting for the politics of dancing...

Here’s a political topic you’ll actually want to debate - the politics of dancing. Remember that great ’80s song by Re-Flex? Speaking of reflex, what about The Reflex by Duran Duran? Pure gold. Speaking of gold, check out 80s Gold. Dexy’s Midnight Runners. Huey Lewis and the News. A Flock of Seagulls. Can any music genre ever surpass the ’80s? I think not.

Especially when it comes to creating stellar commercials. Where would the HP Touchsmart be sans Joan Jett's rockin' hit? BTW, isn't funny to think about how scandalous that song was when it came out?! Now it's about as shocking as ...er, well....nothing, I guess.

Swatch watches. Reebok hightops with enormous scrunched-up socks. Jelly shoes. Jelly bracelets. Guess jeans with zippers and bows. The always-hilarious lasagna-eating fat cat, Garfield. Perms. Rat tails. Finally getting rid of rat tails. ESPRIT. Units. Neon socks. The Atari-wanna-be, Odyssey. (Does anyone remember that piece of low-tech heaven?) Here's to every rad child of the '80s. Keep gagging yourself with a spoon. Like, totally!
